"In my opinion, three elements are necessary to produce architecture. One of these would be the material itself. A genuine, substantial material like bare concrete or natural wood. The second element would be pure geometry, the basis or structure that endows a work of architecture with presence. The third element is nature, not nature in the virgin state but nature on which man has imposed order.
